Police Department, Department Guide
Police Services Division, Patrol Operations, Court Liaison
The court officer acts as the liaison with the District Attorney's Office,
City Prosecutor's Office, Municipal Probation, Municipal Court, Boulder County
Juvenile Detention, and the Boulder County Sheriff's Department Jail.
In the early 1990's, the police department found that a tremendous amount
of patrol time was committed to transporting prisoners to jail, and, in some
instances, from jail back to court. To minimize the time commitment for the
patrol division, the court liaison officer position was created. This officer's
primary responsibility is to manage the welfare of prisoners while they are
housed in the Longmont holding facility and to transport those prisoners to
jail if they are ineligible or unable to make bond.
For individuals sentenced in municipal court, the judge may order the defendant
transported to facilities inside or outside of Boulder County, including metro-area
juvenile detention and assessment centers. If individuals are incarcerated
at the time of their required Longmont Municipal Court appearance, the court
officer transports that individual from the facility to municipal court. When
time permits, the court officer attempts to arrest individuals living in Longmont
that are wanted on warrants.
Other responsibilities of the Longmont Police Department Court Liaison includes:
- Registration of sex offenders on Friday's
- Completion of the sex offender validation list for Colorado
- Service of supeonas for the city prosecutor
- Transporting of prisoner's for pre-sentence investigations for probation
- Transporting of prisoner's for the Special Enforcement Unit to conduct interviews in-house
